T.D. & Son Barber Shop

Monday, 31 January 2005

After spend­ing three hours at H&R Block on Saturday, fig­ur­ing out my taxes with the guy there, I needed a nice bit of re­lax­ation. I also needed a hair­cut. So I fi­nally tracked down this hereto­fore un­named but very well rec­om­mended bar­ber shop on Madison in Lakewood and when I went to The Greatest Barber Shop in the World: T.D. & Son Barber Shop.

My al­bum is back on­line and severely culled. You can get to it through the gen­eral info page as well. Rock on.

Update: Oops. I for­got to men­tion that you must al­low javascripts on your browser for the al­bum to work. Peace.

Thermodynamics, Quackery and What We’ve Maybe Missed

Friday, 28 January 2005

The heat death of the uni­verse as framed through the 2nd law of ther­mo­dy­nam­ics prob­a­bly makes such thoughts as I have been try­ing to have lately quite im­pos­si­ble, but the Wikipedia man­ages to toss in just enough doubt [string the­ory!] on the sub­ject that I’ll go ahead and hash out what­ever the hell it is that I’ve been think­ing. I wish I knew more physics.

Appetite Moustache

Thursday, 27 January 2005

I just pol­ished off a bag of bour­bon brown­ies in about a min­ute. My ap­petite is just as, er, healthy as it was when I was in high school. This is a mixed bless­ing. I seem to be phys­i­cally in­ca­pable of putting on weight, but I’m also al­ways rav­en­ous. That is not much fun.

NEohioPAL

Wednesday, 26 January 2005

Awhile back a friend of mine told me how I could sign up for the Northeast Ohio Performing Arts Listserv [NEohioPAL]. A gen­tle­man named Fred Sternfeld main­tains it, and mem­bers of the list­serv send in events in which they are in­volved, au­di­tions, cast­ing calls, free or dis­count shows, you name it. It is heav­ily the­atre-cen­tric but also has crew calls for films and po­etry and other groovi­ness. It has over 37 hun­dred mem­bers and best of all, it is free and de­liv­ered daily to your in­box. If you want to know more, read the FAQ.

A Very Long Engagement [Un long di­manche de fi­ançailles] is a very long en­gage­ment in­deed. Way too long. About 45 min­utes too long. Watching the movie is like eat­ing a plain baguette, It is sort of tasty when you start but you get tired of it long be­fore the end.

Movie Fest

Monday, 24 January 2005

I had some friends over on Saturday for movies. We or­dered Big Guy’s Pizza and watched some real rasp­ber­ries in the world of cin­ema. Two re­views lie af­ter the jump. We watched four, but I’m not go­ing to re­view the ones I’d al­ready seen.
